INTERPRETER INFORMATION

Many people, be they a named party in a case or a witness, need the assistance of interpreters if they are going to participate meaningfully in court proceedings. The Supreme Court has adopted the principle of “equal access to courts for linguistic minorities”, acting on the recommendations of the Supreme Court Task Force on Interpreting and Translation Services.

If you feel that you require the services of an interpreter for court related matters, please contact the criminal courthouse in your county. (Contact Information Below)

NOTE: When the court has scheduled a matter requiring an interpreter, parties are required to notify the court if the matter settles or is otherwise to be postponed so that the court does not incur interpreter fees unnecessarily. If a party fails to so notify the court in a timely fashion, that party may be assessed the cost of the interpreter.
